There are only few ways to earn Club Vistara points. If you’ve Axis Bank Infinite Credit Card, you can easily earn good amount of CV points in a a short time. If not, you need to search other possible ways.
Here’s one such opportunities in partnership with Economist which allows you to earn as good as 25,000 CV points, which gives you about 5 award flights.
Club Vistara presents The Economist special subscription offer, exclusively for its members. Stand to earn Club Vistara Points on print as well as digital subscriptions of The Economist – a reliable source of insight and assessment on international news, politics, business, finance, science, and technology, renowned the world over.
Below are the plans & the CV Points that you could get..
If you do the math, this gives you the purchase rate of Rs.1 to 60Ps per CV Point. That’s a decent value as I personally value CV points at around 75Ps to 1Rs /CV point. You can also get lot more value on select routes.
And Of-course, you also get subscription to the magazine!
This is indeed an amazing offer to grab if you’re The Economist Reader, no doubt. As Jet Airways is out of business, all airlines are adding new routes and I think this is the BEST time for airlines with loyalty programs to capture some market share.
That said, as there are only Air India & Vistara in this segment, Vistara has great opportunity to get loyal customers if they make their loyalty program even better.
For ex, they could allow easy redemption on Singapore Airlines with lesser points, launch more co-branded cards with better CV points earn rate with other Credit Card issuers, etc.
